The General Corporation Law of Delaware has obtained a good reputation for this jurisdiction and has helped Delaware to become one of the best choices for company incorporation. The companies incorporated in Delaware are known as LLCs, which offer the advantages of a combination between a corporation limited by shares and a Limited Partnership, a combination that protects the personal liability and assets of the owners. Likewise it gives the opportunity to the owner to enjoy the benefits of a tax-free jurisdiction on all business transactions and profits generated outside the U.S. without having to go through the restrictions of a US Corporation.

A Delaware LLC Company is not considered a tax haven company, however it has the same advantages as one of them.

As a non-US resident, your Delaware LLC will only be taxed in the US on income from US sources, meaning that income from other countries will not be taxed by the US. Any profits US-sourced income will be taxed by 30%.
